Bill Harley
Sunday, 2 November 2014 - 1:30pm - 4:00pm

A teacher is someone who gives stories to others so they can make their own. Regardless of the subject taught, story is central to how people make sense of the world and build a community with others. In this workshop, participants will look at how stories work in people's lives, what stories define their own lives, and how to use story in an educational setting. Teachers will leave with new ideas for using story in the classroom and a deeper understanding of their work as teachers.

Bill Harley is a master storyteller.

The nationally touring, critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter, author, musician and monologist is considered by fans and peers alike to be one of the best storytellers in America for his celebrations of commonality and humanity through comic narrative songs and confessional spoken works.

“When Bill is telling his story, your own story is happening as you’re listening to his. Storytelling brings people together because you have this common experience. I think people hunger for that,” says Brian Bemel, Artistic Director for Performances to Grow On in Ventura and the founder of the Ojai Storytelling Festival.
